Ghost Rider is my fave... I was hyped to see him appear in the trailer at E3 :-) . I dunno if he's in the base game or the season pass, though. I'm really pleased to see that Marvel Knights are gonna be featured :toot: .

Looks like he's in the base game from what I can tell, not sure whether he'll be playable from the start or if you have to unlock him in the story like with the previous UA games. They haven't announced anyone from the season pass content yet I don't think.

This is coming up fast, lots of chatter in the switch thread, so worth bumping this I think.

Any ITK types know the embargo lifting date? I'd love to read some reviews.

Next Friday is the release right? Looking forward to getting stuck into this. Guessing the embargo lifts the day before release?

No idea on the embargo but I'm guessing on solid 7s or 8s in the reviews. Which as I adore these games translates to a 10.

With regards deals, it's included in the 2 for whatever voucher scheme running on the Switch online/eshop (and I've got fingers crossed that either DQXI or Luigi's Mansion also gets added).

Such a shame they are releasing the DLC teams over months and months. With the last being released next year. Unless it comes with lots of extra quests and bosses then surely most people will be done with it by then?

Hopefully X-Men is the first DLC as that's the one I want the most. Also DLC teams are not available separately, only as part of the season pass.

Review embargo lifts at 7pm EST Thursday according to a post on gamefaqs of all places, so take with a pinch of salt.

Seems very late, though I've not kept up with big video game releases these days.

Really want to get this but with Fire Emblem out the week after I'm torn between the two. Loved the previous Ultimate Alliance so think I'll wait for the reviews before settling on which one.

Yeah this is silly. It's not exactly an MMO or service game, if I play any of the DLC characters it'll probably be once they've all been released so I only have to revisit the game once.

Season pass characters come with new single player story content and...... If you guy the season pass you get Chef Deadpool character skin.

So they're more expansion packs? Adding to the story.

Expect they'll be "side stories"

Don't like they're not telling you who's in them, and you need to buy the whole pass

Yeah buying the whole pass or nothing is a bit poor. Hopefully they announce something before the first pack of the season pass launches so we know exactly what to expect.

I'm not expecting this to get rave reviews tbh.
